This is one of the most beautifull roads in the world. Especially during sunset. There are plenty of little parking spaces to stop and enjoy the sunset.

We decided to go to Cape of good hope through by the sea. In spite of being a closed day, with no sun and a bit of rain, we were blessed with amazing views. Beaches are beautiful, but Chapmans peaks is out of the blue. The view to the mountain and the sea is simple amazing and beautiful. While we... More

We were on our way to Cape Point and drove through Chapman's Peak Drive. While the weather is cloudy, it did not reduce our modd in this stunning drive and the views were still beautiful. We cannot imagine how best it would be if it was a sunny day to view lion head and beaches. Really enjoy!

This road was closed the first time we got to it from the south (Simons Town end) so we came back the next day from Hout Bay instead. We learned from the toll booth that you can actually get a Day Pass and drive up for 4km to the view point and back again without paying the toll - you... More

The scenery was absolutely breathtaking. Would recommend getting a driver so everyone can enjoy the view not just the occupants.

R42 toll fee but well worth it as the drive from Hout Bay along Chapmans Peak is spectacular. Beautiful drive, lots of stopping points and you can take a picnic with you. Great scenery and just really beautiful and enjoyable. Keep going and drive through to the coast in the other side at Simons Town and go to Boulders beach... More
